Yuma, Montezuma & Jackson County Updates

Instead of waiting a week for a bird trips to finish and getting reports, I will transcribe telephone reports of current bird trips. Amy Davenport

Strong winds, hot temperatures experienced across Colorado today.

Yuma County
Jacob Washburn and Ray Simmons conducted bird counts on private lands today. Afternoon winds of 18+ mph and temperatures of 101 did not aid in their effort. Best birds: Northern Cardinals (7), Fox Sparrow (eastern pair) and a Great Crested Flycatcher.

Montezuma County
Bryan and Sue Ehlmann birded in "cooler" temperatures, 88 degrees in the afternoon with 20+ mph winds. They found Black Phoebes are two locations.

Jackson County
Jerry Petrosky joined Richard Stevens for Boreal Owl surveys. No word yet on their all night/two day endeavor. Temperatures still reached 86 degrees in the mountains.
